Small window

Every now and then, I catch a glimpse of a scene that stops me in my tracks then spurs me to get my gear and capture it!

(The sun sets remarkably fast when you start setting up and snapping.)

Shooting in aperture mode, I set the depth of field to f/22 for the sunbeam effect and got the image below.

1/40 sec, f/22, ISO 400

Since the wind was brisk, I quickly boosted the ISO from 400 to 1000 to increase the shutter speed from 1/40th of a second to 1/160th of a second and managed to get a crisper shot before the sun vanished behind the low clouds.

1/160 sec, f/20, ISO 1000

Here’s the close up comparison with camera settings from Lightroom .So glad there was just enough time to make the quick adjustment. I love the final shot.
